Sounds Like Me was launched to help solve a global problem:
- Over 400M people have hearing loss, projected to grow to 700M by 2050
- However, only 16% use hearing aids due to cost, access and the negative image and clunkiness of traditional hearing aids
- Impact of unaddressed hearing loss is heartbreaking...it includes social isolation, dimished education and career opportunities, speech difficulty and increased rates of dementia.
This is where Sounds Like Me comes in...
